Ski Resort Meribel Les Allues

Situated right in the centre of the Tarentaise Valley, is the well known ski resort of Méribel – founded and designed in the late 1930’s by a British Colonel who had a vision to create one of the finest ski areas in Europe, away from the likes of Austria and Germany.  This charming valley is made up of a number of small villages ranging in altitude from 1100 – 1800m, all of which link in to the vast ski area of the 3 Valleys.

“Méribel les Allues” is one of those small villages and is found in the heart of the valley at 1100m, ideally located for direct access to the centre of Méribel ski resort via cable car and free bus service.  Respected as the “administrative” centre of Méribel, Les Allues has kept its traditions with lovely old farm buildings, hidden alleys and a communal bread oven.  More recent years have seen the uprising of chocolate box chalets, several restaurants, a supermarket and an upbeat bar with live music. Lying just 5 minutes drive from the popular centre of Méribel, it’s the perfect location for those looking for a more tranquil spot, away from the hustle and bustle of a large resort, but still offering easy access to the vast ski area.

The Trois Vallées is one of the largest linked ski areas in the world, made up of 600km of terrain across 321 pistes.  Whether skier or snowboarder, beginner or advanced, the choice is endless – you’ll find tree skiing, cross country skiing, numerous hiking trails, huge powder bowls, beginner slopes that are rated top ten in the world, a network of 200 ski lifts and two of the best snowboard parks in Europe.

Meribel Les Allues Winter Activities

Aside from the skiing or boarding on offer in the 3 valleys, there’s plenty of alternative activity to be had in the larger resort of Méribel. The very impressive “Parc Olympic “Centre in is home to a fully equipped gym, swimming pool, climbing wall, spa, ice skating rink and a kids club. There is an independent cinema with numerous daily showings in English, ten pin bowling, a superb array of shops and too many bars and restaurants to mention – many of which are gourmet and sporting a Michelin star.

Chalet locations

Our chaming catered Chalet Mont d’Or is located just a short walk from the village centre, which is home to some delightful little restaurants, a pub, supermarket and ski hire shop. A short drive from the chalet is the Gondola lift, which takes you directly into the centre of Meribel ski resort and from where you will have access to the main lift station and ski school meeting points. SnowChateaux provides a free daily minibus service to and from the Gondala lift to the Chalet.  Away from the hustle and bustle of a large resort, in a tranquil spot, but still offering easy access to the vast ski area, it’s the perfect location.
